Navigating the Criminal Justice System in Jacksonville

All criminal offenses are prosecuted by the state or federal government, so if you are under investigation or have been charged with a crime, it is literally the government versus you. On one side are the resources of the police and prosecution, and on the other side are you and your defense team.

Whether accused of a minor misdemeanor or a serious felony, people charged with crimes must navigate the legal mechanism of the criminal justice system. You may have to go to state court in Jacksonville or Kenansville or to one of the federal courts of the Eastern District of North Carolina but, either way, you are entitled to legal representation. Your lawyer is there to explain the law, the legal system, and your specific charges.

Your defense is also responsible for:

  • Investigating the facts
  • Analyzing the how the law applies to you and what defenses can be used
  • Standing up for you in negotiations with the prosecutor and the court

Should your case go to trial, your attorney will be the one to present the evidence that tells your side of the story and argue for your innocence.

The Opinions That Matter Most

Read What Our Clients Are Saying
    “I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!”
    I was facing 3 charges, granted the police officers completely overcharged and without merit, however, Trevor knew what to do in order to prepare a strong case to make sure that when he spoke with the DA this would be clearly displayed. If convicted of one of the charges I was accused of it would have put my employment in jeopardy. Needless to say, I was overjoyed and elated when I received his call that "ALL" charges had been dismissed! He charged me a reasonable fee and accepted a payment plan! I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!

    “I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery.”
    I hired Mr. Avery to represent me for my custody case. He was upfront with me about what to expect right from the beginning and he came through. He was easy to talk to, and I knew he was being honest with me about my case. I had to call him a couple of times after business hours because of my work schedule and he still made time to answer my questions. I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery. I would recommend him to anyone.
